Barack Obama hits back at 'birthers' and releases birth certificate

Obama birth certificateMr Obama said he was bemused over the conspiracy theories over his birthplace, and said that the obsession over the "sideshow" issues was a distraction in a "serious time". "We're not going to solve our problems if we get distracted by carnival acts and sideshow barkers,

Why Obama hasn’t fulfilled his promise to close Gitmo

GitmoThe sputtering end of the Obama administration’s plans to prosecute Khalid Sheik Mohammed in federal court came one day late last month in a conversation between the president and one of his top Cabinet members.
